Good luck to our friend of this blog, Álvaro Santos Pereira, in his new role
in the Portuguese Government. :D
And of course to all of the new cabinet.
A quick assessment (of a few ones):
Vitor Gaspar - Minister of Finance - large economic policy experience in Europe and Portugal, very knowledgable about the portuguese economy and the relation with the EU; unexpected, but logical choice.
Nuno Crato - has over the years expressed clear and strong opinions about education, it has now the chance to "do it"
Paulo Macedo - better known for his previous work in Government, highly-qualified manager, a required skill for the coming years in the health sector.
Overall, a relatively young Government, something that is refreshing. A good start, I would say.
